Probably one of the last leisure outing opportunities before The Cat goes into tax mode. First, a visit to a health food store to look for papayas. The papaya selection has not been too good in SPAM Land recently. The fruit tends to start rotting from the stem side before fully ripening. Trying the health food store to see if better.

The Mouse picked up a clearance “wheat less” muffin to try try.

Wheat Less Muffin Half

Uhm, no. Very dry, sandy-like texture. Good thing it was reduced price.

Next was lunch at nearby chop suey restaurant. More pics tomorrow. A preview for now.

Making Dumplings

Gau gee. Mmm. The Mouse loves watching/learning how food is made.

The Mouse prefers boiled but guessing most of the dumplings will be deep-fried.

Stay safe and well.

Mmm, Donuts

What The Mouse ate before the 1:00 deadline yesterday.

Red Velvet Cake

These were the first donuts The Mouse ate in a long time. But, because he couldn’t eat them yesterday (after 1:00), he kinda wanted to. Ugh! What would Freud say? The Mouse channeled Homer Simpson instead. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Not a typical Sunday. Did not visit the farmers market, trek into town.

Breakfast at a place The Mouse been wanting to try for years. MAC 24/7. The Cat ordered mochi pancakes to try.

Mochi Pancakes

Soft and chewy, like a gummi bear. Hee hee. Leftover just as good. The Mouse would order these.

Funny, The Mouse couldn’t find breakfast to order, since it’s a diner concept, the whole menu is available “24/7”. The Mouse went with his standby BLT sandwich.

BLT on Wheat Toast

Very good, a sufficient amount of bacon, crispy. Fries were pretty good too.

A trip to the mall and lunch at another “diner”, Liliha Bakery at the mall.

The Cat’s turn, BLTA with add on lobster bisque.

BLTA on Crescent Bread

Again, a decent amount of bacon, not as crispy though. Still good.

Lobster Bisque

The Cat thinks for a diner, good job on the soup. The Mouse thinks The Cat found a new lunch spot when she’s at the mall.

The Mouse tried their signature hamburger steak.

With brown rice and green salad for balance

The Mouse likes. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

A trip to The Mouse’s favorite bakery/breadshop. JJ2.

Square Bread

Got to the bakery a little late. Only a few packages left. The Mouse only needs one. 🙂

Pastry with Dried Pork Shavings

Saved for later. Maybe toaster oven on the weekend with a nice cup of tea. Hee hee.

The Mouse needed a little green for The Cat’s bento.

White Stem Cabbage

Cleaned, boiled, olive oil and salt.

Assembling The Cat’s bento.

Okinawan Sweet Potato and Chickpeas


Add Bamboo Shoot and Szechuan Preserved Vegetable

Not enough space for the protein.

Leftover Ribs

Enjoy. Eat well.

Today, family gathered to “say hello” to the ancestor.


Got to the Manoa a little earlier. Breakfast from Fendu Boulangerie.

Bran Muffin and “Breakfast Biscuit”


Mango Scone

Didnʻt get to stay for lunch with the family after the ritual, The Cat had a last minute appointment with a client.

Enjoy. Eat well.
